NEW YORK (Reuters) - Republic Airlines Inc. (RJET: Quote, Profile, Research) said on Monday that its Chautauqua subsidiary would be rebranded as "Republic Connection".

Chautauqua Airlines currently operates as US Airways Express, Delta Connection, and American Connection throughout the United States as well as Canada.

CEO Brian Bedford said, "The Rebranding of our Chautauqua unit will allow us to lower our existing labor cost structure."

According to Bedford, Republic Connection will operate as a commuter air carrier bringing connecting passengers to what he termed, "mainline" Republic Airlines.</SPAN>

Existing Chautauqua employees will have the opportunity to interview for positions within Republic's mainline operation.

Doesn't really sound like an American airline.


Makes me think of the Union of the the Soviet Socialist Republic, or the People's Republic of China.

I have a gut feeling that in the not too far distant future, there may be a degree or two of truth to this. (No, not RP "mainline" stuff.) I would not be at all suprised to see almost everything shift toward the Republic certificate, with either Shuttle or CHQ operating the redheaded-stepchild stuff for scope related purposes. Lets face it: Republic is a helluva lot easier to spell and pronounce.

Well, that hit a little close to home. TSA made a remarkably similar sounding statement around the beginning of the whole Hojet fiasco. It went something like this:

"We are starting a new company called HoJet which be a great, long term place to work. It won't be like TSA which was just a stepping stone. Hojet will be great, TSA sucks. There will be significant opportunities for current TSA employees to apply to Hojet."

The only difference is that they were serious.

just figured that since Republic was flying mainline airplanes...

...and Chautauqua's flying commuter airplanes...

(shrug) Mainline Chautauqua and Chautauqua Express. Don't blame me, I heard it from a CHQ guy.

I'm amazed that 70 seat jets are now considered mainline airplanes...

I fly for the mainline at my airline! The guys in the ERJs just feed us in the 170s! There are quite a few of us in the 170 that do refer to the ERJ as the feeders and us as mainline.

That's almost as ridiculous as some of the idiots that were referring to the CRJs as Independence Express and the 319s as Independence Mainline...........

Boys playing with toys.......some people's lives are so pathetic that the only way they can feel good about themselves is to try and make somebody else look inferior....

Go get some hair between your legs junior, and then come and tell us all about your "mainline" job....

You know, as much as an a$$hole as this guy seems to be, he's not that far off the mark here. I'm in the top third of the master RP seniority list, livin' the dream on the 140. (yes, I was being facetious) I'm already hearing about 170 first officers who profess a personal affront when 145 FOs move to the left seat of the 170. As if the seniority list should be suspended just for them.

Enough

Alright already...

I say a few of us get together and finally off this punk a$s E170GuppyKiller guy. Anybody with me on this one? Isn't there a way to just permanently ban this kid for being nothing else than just highly annoying and embodying the worst that the industry and the profession has to offer. E170GuppyKiller- I don't know who you are, but if I ever meet you, I am going to punch you repeatedly in the face and then kick you in the groin.

Fly safe ~
